President Obama is meeting this afternoon with both national security and health care advisors to discuss the Ebola situation, the White House said today.
The meeting appears to have been called rather hastily.
In on the gathering are National Security Advisor Susan Rice, HHS Secretary Sylvia Burwell, White House Homeland Security Advisor Lisa Monaco, and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Tom Frieden, who is participating by telephone.
The press corps will be invited in to take a picture, but no questions please.
UPDATE: Post-meeting from the White House:
The President was briefed on the status of the investigation into the apparent breach in infection control protocols at the Dallas hospital and remedial actions underway to mitigate similar breaches in the future. Secretary Burwell and Dr. Frieden described the surge in personnel and other resources to Dallas to assist in the investigation as well as other measures to heighten awareness and increase training for healthcare workers throughout the country.
The President reinforced that this investigation should proceed as expeditiously as possible and that lessons learned should be integrated into future response plans and disseminated to hospitals and healthcare workers nationwide.
